These Blackhawks got slimed a few years ago in Tulsa! Another good PR event for the fire suppression company -- Their system will put-out fires OUTSIDE the hangars!!

I'll bet they found plenty of 1- and 2-stripers to "volunteer"!

OK, so promise you guys won't make fun of me...this was long ago;) I did not care what I looked like - lol!

I am a huge fan of the rocket plane era and early racing airplanes (think Wedell-Williams, Wittman Bonzo, Menasco engines, etc etc) so I should say that there were three people I always wanted to meet (not necessarily in any order):

1. Robert A. "Bob" Hoover
2. Jimmy Doolittle
3. Chuck Yeager

Well, I have met one... and all I wanted to talk about was what I had learned about him reading Yeagers book;)

That's a terrific picture. I'm jealous.
